All In One Box Pouch


For my first #mayisformakers purchase I chose the All In One Box Pouch pattern by Aneela Hoey. I was pretty busy but I did my best to find time to work on it whenever I could. I was so excited to see the finished product I finished in a couple days!

I used some natural linen and prints from the Mendocino line by Heather Ross. This great little shop on Etsy called SewElegantly sells hand cut 5" charm packs and yardage of this line.



This bag was definitely not difficult to put together, but it does require at least intermediate sewing skills. It even comes with instructions for a quick little pincushion. However, it would be hard for a beginner with little to no experience to accomplish.

Obviously the front zipper pouch required the most detail and work. But, once you get it together everything else comes along pretty quickly :). It has 2 clear vinyl zipper pockets inside of the front pouch itself and the back has 2 slip pockets.




As you can see, the whole pouch has a nice "boxy" look and feel and thanks to the interfacing and fusible fleece used on it it stands up nicely and has great shape. I used a cute little suede tassel to finish it off. And although its hard to tell from the photos... this pouch is pretty large. Perfect for EPP, hand embroidery projects, and more!

 The only trouble i had was the binding - not sewing it on - the actual making of the binding strips. For whatever reason I found the instructions in the pattern for making binding strips to be 10x more difficult than the ways i had previously learned how to do it. It just came down to my personal preference and knowing a way to make the strips that was much easier and faster for me.



Hope you enjoyed checking out this All In One Box Pouch, and if you'd like to make your own hop over to Aneela Hoey's site and grab the pattern! Thanks for reading :)
